Acquisitions | Dries Van Noten Carry On

I'm in San Francisco swimming through the sea of suits at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, but stole away for a few minutes yesterday for a major, major treat - this Dries Van Noten carry on (a treat made possible by the considerable sale at Barneys right now).  It resembles YSL's Downtown bag, but you could fit a small child inside.  Quite nice to travel home from a business trip in better style than that in which you arrived.  

They have my favorite wooly, collegiate-looking bags on sale, too -- for only about $267.33!


  1. Incredible bag. I wish I had some extra money to play with but Christmas knocked me out. I've wanted to comment that I fell in love with your J Press scarf featured in your Prague holiday photos. Fell so hard my boyfriend took note and bought me my own (London University) for Christmas!

  2. very nice!!! that leather looks like it feels "like butter"!!!

    That is a beautiful bag. The right equipment makes traveling so much more pleasurable. What do you do that you were at the health care conference? Heard it was interesting...

    Speaking of beautiful bags, there is one on sale at ABC home store that I almost bought last weekend-and keep thinking about. Old leather, well constructed. We just posted about it.
